Our Practice Groups



The profile of an industry executive has changed significantly in recent years. Yesterday’s emerging markets have long since become saturated. Therefore, companies are pushing into new regions. Leaders need experience in risk management, in order to gauge the threats and opportunities of evolving growth markets. They must also have international experience and a deep understanding of the economic systems in which they operate. Companies can only differentiate themselves from their competitors in new markets by utilizing innovative technologies.

Talentor’s Industrial Practice Group focuses on helping companies attract, develop, and retain best-in-class leaders. They need a new breed of executive with the skills to deliver superior results now, plus the vision to navigate a marketplace that grows more complex every day. The Industrial Practice Group covers a wide array of subsectors from the manufacturing industry to the engineering, chemicals, logistics and automotive industries.
